Tours of RE:AL ESTATES are available on request only by emailing email@example.com.
RE:AL ESTATES (Running May 7- June 21) is the first of three exhibitions located on Governors Island as part of RE: Governors Island - a triad of exhibitions and events developed by GAUD students and faculty speculating on Governors Island and its ongoing redevelopment.
This exhibition includes work from graduating and continuing students who participated in the SE Asia courses in Summer 2020. Through AR triptychs, VR models and short hybrid films, the research showcased in this exhibition examines how three buildings slated for demolition (or recently demolished) might be (or have been) altered and conserved in order to balance the opposing demands for dense urbanism and community wellness surrounding the Chinatown and Pearl Hill Park neighborhood regions of Singapore.
The Pratt GAUD Research and Event Space is hosting residencies for various students and faculty conducting ongoing research on Governors Island; many of whom are participants in the exhibitions and events this Fall. Their focus is to use the house as a research hub for on-site activities as well as to consider complimentary student or faculty-based programming which may enrich our engagement with the Governors Island community.
RE: Governors Island is a series of events and exhibitions curated by Graduate Architecture and Urban Design examining the ongoing development of Governors Island, its shorelines, existing and new structures showcasing student and faculty research in the School of Architecture at Pratt Institute.
